The Pierce's Inn is located in a rural area approximately 8 miles from the Dartmouth Campus. Since the inn does not normally handle computing events such as HAMR, the internet service is not enterprise level. Internet service might be sluggish at times, but there is nothing we can do to speed up the service (we checked). Please prepare by arranging large downloads before you arrive.
It is really important to the success of the hackathon that attendees are courteous about their bandwidth usage. If you will be using any large datasets please download beforehand. If this won't be possible, contact us in advance and we will try to collect your data and bring it to the inn on a hard drive for you. If we find that several attendees need to gain access to high speed internet for a short while, we will be happy to arrange a trip down to the Dartmouth Campus.
